So earlier today, the US Senate confirmed Betsy DeVos, a wealthy contributor to the Republican Party with no experience at all in connection with public schools, as the head of the Department of Education, in charge of American public schools. Her only activity in this area previously has been in opposition to public education, in favor of private/charter schools, and in giving lots of her own money to Republicans running for office. Yeah, quite a pick. Here's a quick little song about that.
edit- now with dobro/steel guitar!
Betsy DeVos, she's the new boss, of the Department of Education
She''ll make the rules for all public schools across the nation
what were her qualifications for such an important position?
the whole idea of public schools she's in opposition
she wrote lots of checks and now she does flex her unmitigated gall
private school classes not schools for the masses are what she wants above all
no child left behind if you go to religions institutions or charters
thos who are not her kind who cares if life for them is harder
